Bred by Leo McNamara, Sr., of Two Gaits Farm, Adios had a noteworthy racing career. Purchased, as a stallion, by Delvin Miller, Hanover Shoe Farms and Max C. Hempt, he stood at stud at Miller's Meadow Lands Farm, Pennsylvania. Adios went on to become the greatest sire the sport has ever known. He produced a continuous stream of champion colts and fillies. Many became great sires and broodmares, thus carrying on his tradition of greatness. Two successful pacing lines descending from Adios are through Bret Hanover and Abercrombie. Foaled January 03, 1940. Died June 22, 1965.
